Capital Markets – Equity

The Equity Capital Markets practice at A&L Goodbody is internationally renowned for advising on complex capital markets issues involving Ireland, the UK, the US, Europe and Asia, as well as in all the leading stock exchanges including the Irish and London Stock Exchanges, the NYSE and NASDAQ. We have acted on most of the IPOs and listings of Irish companies over many years, as well as on a large number of take private transactions.

We have devised or adopted a number of highly successful and innovative capital markets structures for our clients. We help develop strategies for companies seeking to effect capital markets reorganisations, including moving their primary listings, delisting, and share buybacks (including ADRs and shares listed on DTC), as well as court approved share capital reductions.
